Anxiety & stress can impact Even the most experienced Humanitarian Or aid workers
Humanitarian and aid work can be filled with uncertainty and stress. Even before they travel to their assignment, staff can experience anxiety. In one survey, almost four out of five workers said they had experienced mental health issues as a result of their work.
However, if you prepare your staff before they travel, support them during their work, and care for them even after they come back, then you can do more than just fulfill your duty of care – you take a big step towards making your team and your mission thrive.
And that’s where we come in.
